In NLP they use eye accessing cues. The idea is that when we access memory
or construct an experience our eyes move in a certain way.

The NLP claim is that by learning these eye accessing cues, you will get a
clue to the way another person is thinking.
E.g., looking down left indicates internal dialogue processing / tape
loops - i.e. thinking about an unsolved problem. In an NLP session such
points in a conversation will be marked as key moments indicating something
which needs to be resolved later on. Looking up left is visual recall etc.

My question is: What is the scientific basis for this, if any?
Anyone with a good link?
